About 42 Acres

42 Acres offers a luxurious setting near Frome in Somerset, perfect for a magical weekend of yoga. The retreat will offer a wonderful opportunity to revitalise in nature and enjoy reconnecting with yourself and others.

Set in 42 acres of private land, this stunning retreat space with stylish accommodation and an amazing yoga yurt is encircled by seven hundred acres of ancient forest.

Sustainability and comfort are at the forefront of the 42 Acres vision with reclaimed materials used for the interiors of the property, organic produce from the land used to create the most nourishing meals and all power self generated through biomass and solar.

Retreat programme

The retreat will begin on Friday evening with a welcome class followed by a delicious dinner. Lara will then lead you through two classes on the Saturday in the sacred yurt yoga space. She will offer a long morning class to align to body and breath followed by breakfast.

During the day there will be plenty of time for walks, massage treatments or curling up with a good book. There will be a delicious healthy lunch and the group will meet again for a late afternoon practice to delve deeper into the postures.

Arrival time on Friday 27 January will be from 4pm. Departure on Sunday will be after lunch at 2pm.

Comments

I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful retreat at 42 Acres, I had such a lovely, peaceful time. Everything was absolutely wonderful: the food, the location, the classes, the massages and the people. I left feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and really inspired to explore yoga more.’

42 Acres is a magical haven. The unobtrusively cool interior design is in a league of its own and absolutely bang up-to-date, and yet, this beautiful home still retains its connection to the past. The setting is 42 acres of glorious nature, gorgeous English farmland, bounded by ancient meadows and forests. I experienced one of the most magical weekends at 42 Acres and this place will forever be in my heart. I can't recommend it enough.
I had such a wonderful time thank you - Lara was an incredible teacher. I loved my introduction to Scaravelli yoga and her enthusiastic, energetic approach.

I had such a wonderful time at 42 Acres in Somerset last weekend. The house and accommodation were beautiful and spacious. Practicing yoga in the yurt was very special. It was a great crowd, with a good mix of people. Everyone got along really well and we had a good laugh too. The catering was spot on and the food was delicious. Yoga on a Shoestring organised everything perfectly and communication was excellent. I will definitely be booking again.

Wow! What a wonderful weekend yoga retreat. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. The location was simply stunning, the yoga sessions that Lara led were revitalising and just what I needed for my body, mind and soul and the food was exquisite. Thank you so much YOAS for making the weekend so special. I am definitely going to come back next year as I am hooked!
